We had a system installed this Summer and we had alot of problems- they were way later then they said they would be, some of our heads are still acting weird they do not seem to care. I am a curious gal and searched their company on-line and found that one of the owners- Chris Nichholson- is also the owner of another business in Grand Rapids called Grand Rapids Hydroponics- I looked at their Facebook page and it is disgusting! They sell hydroponics things and they have a lot of naked women on the Facebook page- it is sexist and demeaning!
DO NOT SUPPORT THIS COMPANY AND THEIR GROSS SEXIST WAYS!!!! WOMEN- DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!
I worked on an underground sprinkling crew for two summers back when I was in college. Nicholsons is so far ahead of the competition that they don't even have a close second. They were not only 700.00 less than their closet competitor. I priced out doing everything myself and only paid 300.00 more to have them do it. They didn't mess around and walked all the property lines and went over the details. I stayed for the entire job and they showed me some really neat things that I was unfamiliar with. Anyway, great price, great guys, great job.
THESE GUYS ARE BAD AND DO NOT DESERVE YOUR BUSINESS. I PAID OVER $500 AND THEY TOOK MY PUMP AND THE PROBLEM WAS NOT THE PUMP AND WHEN THEY RETURNED MY PUMP THEY TOOK MY ELECTRICAL CORD OFF MY PUMP AND SOLD IT TO ANOTHER CUSTOMER. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, IF YOU USE THEM YOU ARE GOING TO GET A BAD DEAL. MOVE ON TO A MORE REPUTABLE COMPANY.
I have used Nicholsons since the second year they opened their doors. I have always had good service with the exception of a service technician named Isaac. I called an the issue was resolved immediately. The reason for this review today is two fold. The firs is to simply state that Nicholsons is a top notch company. They are not perfect as I did have one issue over the 20 years they have serviced my system. Speaking with friends and neighbors and hearing their experiences with other companies. We have no interest in switching. The second is that I read a poor review online. Call me nosy, but I wanted to know. I called the office and Chris called me back later that evening. It was a little late( 8:15 PM.) but he did return the call the same day. I asked him what was going on and I applaud him on his response. He told me that a customer had their system winterized late in the year and expected it to be warrantied free of charge. Straight to the point is always the way to go in my book.
Nicholsons installed our last system many years ago. Jon had done the work for us and he did a nice job. We recently built and had the pleasure of meeting Chris. His knowledge and professionalism were unmatched. Even though Nicholsons installed our last system we wanted to get a few quotes. One quote was on a hand written piece of paper. The other quote arrived almost a week later and was just over 700.00 higher. Chris had the quote in my Email the morning after he met with us. These guys give new meaning to the word efficiency. The best part is the mosquito repellent system. He told me that if it didn't work he would give me a refund. Well, it works very well. If you call, make sure you ask for Chris.
We called Nicholsons to have our system started for the year. Chris called us back and recommenced we wait a few weeks due to the weather. My co-worker had already had their system turned on and had a friend. We had a guy do it on the side for 50.00. Well, a few nights ago the thing outside froze and water went everywhere. We called my co workers friend. He just said "sorry". He wouldn't even come out and shut the water off. I felt awful and Called Nicholsons. Mike and another gentleman came out with in two hours and shut the water off. They didn't even charge me. The said we would worry about it in a few weeks when the weather was better. Nicholsons is our sprinkling guy from now on. They are the few that still care.
We LOVE Nicholson's!!! – Thank you for your excellent customer service with our sprinkling system. Our original sprinkling system was installed by Oasis on June 17, 1999. We had many problems with the system and their poor customer service. We’d leave message after message and receive no responses. We had to have parts replaced constantly and issues were never taken care of in a timely manner. After dealing with them for 5 years, we gave up and called you. That was the best thing we could have ever done! You helped us within 24 hours and have been doing a fantastic job ever since. Since 2004, you have replaced the old Oasis system with your fabulous products. Due to these fabulous products, we usually only need your services for spring start-up and for winter shut-down. We also appreciated the way that you actually took the time to teach us how to use our system so it runs economically and best for our lawn.
You are definitely the best around. We look forward to seeing you twice a year!

P.S. Sam just came to winterize our system. He is a really nice guy. He is a good edition to your team. Thank you again!
Thank you again for a great year of customer service and care. We appreciate you!!!
We have been very happy with our sprinkler system. Nicholsons originally installed the system when we built our house eight years ago. Since then we have had Nicholsons winterize every year and inspect for any damage. We would highly recommend Nicholsons for anyone considering a lawn sprinkling system.

My husband and I have had our underground sprinkling system for eleven years. It seems like today companies are just going through the motions. Nicholsons is the exception. They did a wonderful job for us and our lawn has been beautiful year after year. There prices are by far the best. When we added on our pole barn they trenched in the wire for us for 100.00. Our electrician wanted 600.00. It was so hot this year that our neighbors finally had it done. I work in quality control and these guys are good. I watched them install my neighbors system and they are as efficient as I have ever seen. They had two guys putting the pipe in with a big machine. A few guys were digging the holes. they had a girl putting the heads on. Another guy was burying the holes. Nice work Nicholsons. Keep it up.
By far the best in town! I called Nicholsons last year for a bid. A gentleman came out and was fairly nice. He just seemed to be preoccupied with other things. The bid he sent me was professional and the price was the best of the bids I received. We didn't end up doing it because we were just to busy with work and the kids. Anyway. I ended up calling them back as I heard an ad on the radio. This time the owner himself actually came out. Well let me tell you. Chris is by far the most knowledgeable and nicest person you could ever meet. My husband asked him question after question and with out fail he knew his business. We are extremely happy we used them. Just do your self a favor and ask if Chris can do your estimate. He had the best prices and has been in the business for 20 years. What a wonderful experience. Thanks Nicholsons!
